The Republic of Ireland are looking to salvage some pride in Euro 2024 qualifying as they face Greece in Group B this week.
Republic of Ireland currently sit 4th in Group B with one win and four losses from five games of their campaign.
It's been a dismal time for the Irish in qualifying this time around having gone out with a whimper and failed to make a tournament for the fourth straight time since 2016.
It's been a point of great debate in Ireland since the defeat to the Netherlands last time out with many feeling that manager Stephen Kenny's race is run after a tenure in charge that has only divided the fanbase.
However, the counter argument is that Ireland have been drawn a mightily tough group that few would expect them to get through even in the best of circumstances so it's harsh to relieve Kenny from his duties based on this campaign.
Still, Ireland have never convinced under Kenny and have some promising young players coming through their system so a change is probably the wisest move.
If that is to be the case then this will likely be one of Kenny's last four games in charge of the national team and he'll be hoping to go out with a bang.
They have, however, lost four of their last five games and three of their last five at home so things aren't looking promising.
Greece currently sit 3rd in qualifying Group B with three wins and two losses from their first five games of the season.
It's been a fairly solid campaign for a Greece for a side that have been absent from major tournaments since the 2014 World Cup. They're not going to qualify automatically but they're in a decent position to land a play-off place so a result here is essential to keep them in a strong place.
They are, though, coming into this game amidst a mixed run of form having lost two of their last three games. However, those two games came against France and the Netherlands and given they beat Ireland 2-1 the last time these two sides met they'll fancy themselves to get a point at least here.
For our Republic of Ireland vs. Greece prediction, we're going for a 1-1 draw.
